OK, so 

 a) associations do not map directly to RM assertions, and

 b) their structure is normalized so that the original <member>
    structure is entirely lost.

Both are entirely OK, and consistent with the SAM, but I wanted to
check that I had understood your diagram correctly.

One question is what the subject of R2 is, though. The role played by
x3 in the association, or x3's inclusion in the set {x3, x2}.

(I assume the choice of the <assertion> element type name was a
Freudian slip. :-)
